What's a normal change in heart rate with exercise?

What's a normal change in heart rate with exercise?

Increased heart rate: Exercise is cardiovascular (aerobic) if you raise and elevate your heart rate for an extended period of time. Preferably you would like to elevate your pulse to 65-85% of your max hr. Max hr= 220- age. So for example if you are 30yo your max hr = 190 BPM and you would want to elevate your heart rate to at least 125 to 162. If you are strength training it will be a smaller increase than that. ...Read more

Good Luck. ...Read more

Various ways: Count your pulse immediately after that exercise for 10 seconds and multiply by 6 for the end of exercise heart rate in beats per minute. Measure again in 1 minute and the rate should be at least 12 beats per minute less. In 2 minutes it should be at least 22 beats per minute less. The faster the heart rate goes down the better. Overheating and dehydration may keep pulse elevated. ...Read more
